Jorginho is hopeful of the direction Chelsea have taken under the guidance of Maurizio Sarri.
The midfielder insists that the man responsible for bringing him to the Stamford Bridge should be credited with far more appreciation for his first season with the Blues.
Sarri has reportedly reached a mutual agreement with Chelsea to leave this summer. He is being strongly considered for the managerial seat at Juventus and surprisingly not a lot of Blues fans will miss him.
“It’s wonderful to win such an important trophy after a long, tough, difficult season, but I think we deserved it,” Jorginho told the Express. “Aside from all the criticism, I think we had a great season. We finished third in the Premier League, reached the final of the Carabao Cup and won the Europa League.
“Criticism is part of the game, but I want to thank everyone who made this long journey to come here and cheer us on. I salute my wife and kids, who unfortunately couldn’t come to Azerbaijan because of the chaos it took to get here!”
The former Napoli midfielder has also taken on his fair share of criticisms from the fans after collecting zero assists and only 2 goals from 54 games this season. Not that the midfielder is not talented but his performances this season could make his Chelsea future complicated without Sarri at the helm.
